Graduating Seniors

Graduating Seniors

Over the years you learned what a helpful and valuable resource the Library is.  For only $5 you can continue to have borrowing privileges and other library benefits for one year.  It's easy!  Come into the Library and fill out the form located by the stairs; pay your $5 and you'll become a Friends of the Courtright Memorial Library.

Between now and one year after your graduation, you can save $15 dollars off the regular membership and join the Friends for student price.

It's a great savings and a good deal; you can continue to check out books, CDs, DVDs, and magazines from the Library, as well as order items through OPAL and OhioLink.  Additionally, you can use your Friends card at any OhioLink library throughout the State of Ohio.
